BedRock Siteworks uses three different methods to contain a stone base foundation. In all cases, at least 5 inches of certified drain stone is used on a level, compacted bed and provides proper drainage.
Economy Stone Base Foundation
This foundation is provides a stable stone base foundation for the least cost. An earthen berm is used to contain the drainage stone.
Standard Stone Base Foundation
The popular standard containment includes a border of 4” X 6” or 6” X 6” pressure-treated wood secured with ½” X 24” steel rebar. This border keeps the stone in place and creates a distinct perimeter around the structure. Geotextile fabric placed within the border to stabilize the stone base and also to prevent weed growth. Six inches of certified drain stone insures quick drainage and a dry floor.
Elite Stone Base Foundation
In all functional ways, the Elite option is the same as Standard with a visual boost when we top it with a 1” X 6” Azek composite board that comes in red, brown, or gray.
